They Never Stop, They Never Sleep, They Never Quit

The hallmark of all fascist systems is their relentlessness. Like the Terminator, they cannot be satisfied, they cannot be negotiated with, they cannot be persuaded of the evil of their cause (in fact, that's a feature, not a bug). They just keep coming until either they are destroyed -- or they destroy you. Case in point:

A different health care issue has emerged for Democrats, in sync with the party's pitch to workers and middle-class voters ahead of next year's elections. It's not the uninsured, but rather the problem of high out-of-pocket costs for people already covered. Democrats call it "underinsurance."

After paying premiums, many low- and middle-income patients still face high costs when trying to use their coverage. There's growing concern that the value of a health insurance card is being eaten away by rising deductibles, the amount of actual medical costs that patients pay each year before coverage kicks in. "I think it's going to be the next big problem," said Rep. Jim McDermott, D-Wash., a congressional leader on health care.

"We've got some 17 million more people covered ... but they can't access the care they seem to be entitled to," McDermott said. "It costs too much to use the care. That's the deceptive part about it." Since virtually all U.S. residents are now required to have health insurance by President Barack Obama's health care law, McDermott said Democrats have a responsibility to make sure coverage translates to meaningful benefits.

In other words, having achieved their thug victory with Obamacare, they're now ready to move on to the "next big problem," because for these people there is always a next big problem -- another expansion of government, another bite at your freedom. Now they've come up with the word "underinsurance" as they discover that their magic bullet of Obamacare is -- wait for it -- flawed and, with a brutish hack like McDermott in the lead, needs to be "fixed."

But this is always the way things are on the Left: there is nothing wrong with "reform" that more "reform" won't cure, until the thing or institution being "reformed" bears absolutely no resemblance to what it once was. None of this has anything to do with "health care," of course; rather it is simply another way to expand government and subordinate the people using the bogus Leftist "virtue" of "compassion" -- an expansion of the federal governments powers far beyond those enumerated in the Constitution. It is therefore unconstitutional and, worse, un-American.
